Huskies In the NBA Update
Here is a look at what is going on with former Huskies in the NBA this week:
• Brandon Roy got bad news on Monday when he learned he has a torn meniscus in his right knee that may need surgery. If so, he will be out four to six weeks while recovering. Unfortunately for him, the playoffs will not wait for him, so it could mean he'll miss the Portland Trail Blazers' run through the Western Conference. It sounds like Roy is going to take an alternative course of action and wait to have the surgery until the season is over and try to play with his bum knee.
• Nate Robinson's numbers have been down since his trade from New York to Boston, but instead of preparing for the upcoming off-season as he would have been as a member of the Knicks, he is getting ready for a playoff run with the Celtics. Nate is averaging 6.4 points per game in 14.5 minutes as a Celt. He was scoring 13.2 ppg and playing 24 minutes for the Knicks. I'm sure it is a nice tradeoff for Nate, who has never played in the playoffs in his career.
• The Sacramento Kings boast two former Huskies on their rosters and they are preparing for the off-season. Spencer Hawes has been shut down for the year since late March with a left knee injury that will not require surgery. He averaged 10.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 72 games for the Kings.
Jon Brockman is putting the wraps on his rookie season with the Kings, where he averages 2.9 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Despite his limited minutes, he has developed quite a following in Sacramento. He is affectionately known as the Brockness Monster and can be heard regularly making appearances on morning radio shows and seen making appearances around Sacramento. All indications are he is wildly popular with his teammates and they appreciate his style of play and his fun personality. Check out the impromptu dunk contest after a recent practice:
